Imagine two parallel nickel shutters actuated by screwjack. With prepared/burnished facing edges.
What might we observe across this controlled "crack"?
When forced together? Afterwards?
And a round gap made like a needle valve? Another ilk of crack.
Give me a lever and I will lift the world.
A common steel pipe around a closed end wrench will shear the bolts.
Alan's way is neater.
I get the impression, Dr. Mizuno seals his reactors. So I assume he has the wrench. A common steel pipe can be returned to the store after use. Net cost: time.
Is it wrong to have no shame to use that which society offers to investigate solutions society might need?
If it is illegal, I advocate civil disobedience.
Exactly how are you defining consensus?
Definition of consensus
1 a: general agreement : UNANIMITY the consensus of their opinion, based on reports … from the border— John Hersey
b: the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned ::: the consensus was to go ahead
2: group solidarity in sentiment and belief
A poll was and still is in order.
"... if anyone is interested in applying my ideas during their replication, I would be glad to go into more detail."
So we create cracks. Questions: In which materials? How many materials? Placing them in what environment(s)?
How simple can the experiment be? You can rub a balloon and demonstrate one aspect of charge.
What can you do with common materials to demonstrate LENR?
The idea that we should fear failure strikes me as nonsensical. So I invest my energies elsewhere.
I hope I have done other than put words into your mouth, or attributed thoughts to your thinking mistakenly.
I express my imagination and understanding when posting and seek to make them allies.
Prototype half-scale cell 40 x 300 mm. The heater is a 150 watt cartridge inserted in the thermowell. I'll initially assemble it without Ni mesh, for vacuum testing and bake out. The ports are both 3/8" Swagelok, welded to the end caps.
Giving you a super like and singing your song, Magicsound.
I am drawn to the idea of replicating Mizuno’s calorimeter. It looks relatively expensive to start from scratch, but way easier than dealing with the reactor procedure.
Yes, inexpensive and easier than a reactor. The effort can also bring more data to breakfast on.
Respect to all posters:
I have read that the body part most sensitive to radiative heat is the lips.
I see little use in calorimetry if a device heats a room.
My context is proof of operation. Tuning can wait.
Many parts used by home brewers and professional brewers may prove useful to replication and amplification and worldwide adoption of Mizuno heaters.
... Meanwhile, perhaps a discussion of the unique condition that is required to form in Pd before LENR can occur and how the burnishing process can cause such a condition would be useful.
I posted to vortex-l about the possibility that the palladium need not be present. This assumes, rightly or wrongly, that it is the presence of calcium on the nickel that is a key factor - independent of the presence of palladium.
A complicating thought: The burnishing embeds the calcium. Leading to other questions: Must burnishing be done with different metals? How much calcium can be rubbed into nickel (or palladium)?
So the preparation process you are writing about involves "cleaning", "abrading", and "burnishing". Does it involve micro or nano alloying?
May your lead an interesting life.
Not to criticize those attempting, but even if they are successful, it will be MUCH less convincing than an organized and managed team (such as the Google team, IH etc.) makes the replication.
You are prejudging unknowns. An analogous experiment might be more convincing for a variety of reasons.
Like no control sitting next to it. 10 watts in 1000 out. Powered by batteries. With a second reactor powered by the heat from the first. Finally, with the heat from the second charging the batteries of the first. Confusing? Convincing?
Am I prejudging unknowns, Bob?
